About Us

The Royal Agricultural Society of England is an independent charity and membership organisation dedicated to supporting the progression of knowledge and innovation within the agricultural community.

RASE was founded with the goal to apply new science to agriculture and stays true to this by enabling farmers to access the information that is needed to make informed decisions about the management of farm businesses of today.

In the midst of a turbulent time for agriculture, we recognise that the technologies and farming practices of the future must optimise food productionfarm profitability, the environment and people. The RASE Farm of the Future initiative, which is delivered in partnership with Innovation for Agriculture, identifies and shares agricultural solutions, technologies and practices which can help farm businesses, people and wider communities to thrive.



RASE members can benefit from joining a community of farmers, industry participants and researchers, all of whom have an interest in new ideas, technologies and solutions which can enable the progression of agriculture. Members can attend a variety of membership events each year, providing the opportunity to see new technologies and approaches in practice while connecting with other members from across the country.

Membership also provides access to an online library of new and archive resources.  


Wider activities

RASE delivers an array of events for the wider agricultural community, which includes the biennial British Pig and Poultry Fair and regular Farm of the Future events. We also celebrate the leaders of our industry via the annual RASE Awards Day.


Our values

Inclusive – we will ensure everyone in the agricultural community in England can benefit from our activities. Our membership options reflect this and we also include non-members in many of our events and other activities.

Progressive – we were founded with the goal to apply new science to agriculture. We stay true to this by being open to new ideas and solutions. Our aim is for all our activities to support the progression of knowledge within the agricultural community.

Authentic – we are independent from political pressure and excess commerciality. A genuine, evidence-based culture underpins our activities.
